In a short time, Yazmin Lacey’s become known for making intimate experiences feel both deeply personal and universal through a beat driven take on soul and R&B.
This event has passed.
Yazmin Lacey came into music late and almost as if by fate. The 34-year-old throughout makes the intimate experiences of “break ups, moving, starting again, making mistakes” feel both deeply personal and universal, conveyed with rawness and honesty. With a chameleonic sound and a spontaneous recording style, her 2023 debut album Voice Notes captures the beauty of imperfection in all the big moments.
Over three projects, Lacey has charmed minds with powerful vignettes and graceful grooves, which sonically illustrate the different environments they were written in. ‘Voice Notes’ follows a similar structure, addressing everything from generational changes to unrequited love over warped soul, reggae and electronica. Although the record’s themes are more developed, there’s always been a rawness to her work. Finding beauty in imperfection, Yazmin’s unfiltered approach has seduced tastemakers like Gilles Peterson and rewarded her millions of views on music platforms like COLORSxSTUDIOS.
